Savannah restaurateur and Food Network star Paula Deen joined "Good Morning America" to whip up a few of her favorite home cooking recipes. Deen also plays Orlando Bloom's Aunt Dora in the new Cameron Crowe film, "Elizabethtown."

After the death of her parents, a young Deen was debilitated with agoraphobia, a fear of open or public spaces, for 20 years. Her recovery is based in no small part on the success of her fledgling catering company.

Ingredients

  • 2 packages frozen chopped broccoli (10-ounces each - optional)
  • 6 chicken breast halves (about 4 pounds), cooked, boned, and shredded
  • 2 cans condensed cream of mushroom soup (10 3/4 ounces each)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese (grated)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  • 1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Cooking Directions

    Remove the outer wrappers from the boxes of broccoli. Open one end of each box. Microwave on full power for two minutes, until thawed. Drain the broccoli or spinach and put into a large bowl. Add the shredded chicken.

    In a medium bowl, combine the soup, mayonnaise, sour cream, cheddar cheese, lemon juice, curry powder, salt and pepper to taste, and wine. Whisk together to make a sauce. Pour the sauce over the broccoli and chicken. Mix well with a spatula.

    Place the mixture into an 11-by-7-inch casserole dish or two 9-inch square disposable aluminum foil pans that have been sprayed with vegetable oil cooking spray. Pat down evenly and smooth with a spatula. Combine the Parmesan cheese and break crumbs and sprinkle over the top. Dot with the butter.

    Wrap the uncooked casseroles securely with plastic wrap, then aluminum foil. Place each pan into a plastic freezer bad and seal. Freeze. Prepare a label with these instructions: Allow casserole to thaw 24 hours in the refrigerator. When ready to bake, remove the plastic wrap and foil. Bake, uncovered, at 350??F for about 40 minutes, until bubbly.

    If serving immediately, bake, uncovered in a 350??F oven for about 30 minutes, until bubbly.

    * If you add two 10-ounce packages of frozen spinach, squeezed until all liquid is out, this dish become Chicken Florentine!
